Star Trek chime
If only it came with that stylish Star Trek robe…

Trekkies, it’s time to set your phasers to stun, because the Star Trek Door Chime by ThinkGeek is ready to be deployed on your starship! Okay, well maybe just outside your bedroom door or your secret hideaway.

This nifty motion-sensitive gadget will alert you when someone passes by with super cool sound effects, so that no Klingon or parent will ever sneak up on you again!

Just like the wall communicator panels from the original Star Trek series, this easily mounted door chime will sound off with a door opening sound or… a Red Alert noise!

All it takes is 3 AA batteries to power up, and it’s nicely sized at 6.5 inches in length and 5.25 inches in width. There’s also a push button on the front for a Communicator Whistle sound, so your friends can buzz themselves in good and proper upon arrival.

Will you have to pay an arm and a Starship Enterprise for it? Nope! At $29.99, this piece of geeky nostalgia will satisfy your inner fanboy or fangirl… and your wallet. It’s also an officially licensed Star Trek collectible, so don’t accept any imitations!
